Husband and wife, Timo and Ashby Marshall met while working as deckhands and spent the best part of ten years sailing the world’s oceans. Timo is from England but when they settled on dry land it was to the America West Coast where Ashby was born and bred. Their years on-board ship taught them to be practical engineers and work as a team which, after several years studying artisan distillation, they now put to good use working alongside each other with their Boston Terrier, Bandit at their distillery in Sebastopol, California.
The Spirit Works Distillery lies in a complex of buildings which was a former Apple processing plant in the centre of Sebastopol, just off the 101. Known as The Barlow, the neighbouring buildings house a brewery, bar and restaurant and a bronze casting works, so what was once dereliction is now a thriving community of artisans.
